Advanced Technologies


The Advanced Technologies project is one of six ground-breaking projects that make up the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s (CCTA) INNOVATE 680 project. The program seeks to implement a suite of six projects that, when operating together, will address corridorwide congestion, travel delays, and operational challenges. CCTA has installed a countywide data center that is connected to high-tech infrastructure like integrated corridor management (ICM) and adaptive ramp metering (ARM) throughout Contra Costa County. Operational data, gathered in real time, prompts the dynamic adjustment of traffic signals and can send travelers real-time traffic updates. Similar congestion management tools are in operation around the world and some countries have shown a 20% increase in freeway capacity.
